. >>brian: tell me what you think of this from senator mccain and senator rand paul. >> i categorically reject your answer to senator johnson about, well, we didn't ask these survivors who were flown to ramstein the next day, that this was not a spontaneous demonstration. to say it was because an investigation was going on -- >> had i been president at the time and i found you did not read the cables from benghazi, did not read the cables from ambassador stevens, i would have relieved you of your post. i think it's inexcusable. >> those were two of the best statements made along with senator johnson's question. what did she do with the statement from senator mccain and the statement from senator paul? she didn't reply at all. then they went on to the next question. >>brian: her answer was interesting and it was very easy, for four months she had the answer. her answer was everything is addressed to me that comes into the state department. but i don't see every cable. it is not possible. >> it's too much for me to read. you know what? it's her job to know things. it's her job to execute
and with people who are not republicans. >> it's why john mccain was popular in 2000. why chris christie has a honeymoon and why barack obama even though the approval late rate at 48%, 49% on policy, he has a high personal rating and 72% of the public like him and i think because he's not been touched by scandal, not been called out as someone to say one thing and do the other. that his whole brand, the post part son pragmatic brand is why he was elected overwhelmingly in 2008 and with all the excitement that's around the last inauguration. now, you can argue he hasn't livered up to the potential but that brand, that notion that you can trust me is what people are looking for in all of their institutions, especially this town. >> great article there. interesting insight. a lot to chew on. >> thank you. >> thank you, ron. good to see you. hope to see you again. >> take care. >> thank you. >>> the body of a chicago man who may have been poisoned before collecting the lottery winnings is exhumed. that looks at the top stories. the authorities say they hope another autopsy of the man will help s
on the congress, as well. i expect in the next month you'll see these proposals, certainly already, senator mccain and graham and in len dez and others are working together to come up with a comprehensive package. remember, there's been some movement from the republicans as a result of the election. i think they're going to want do it on a bipartisan basis. >> go back to guns for a minute. you listed things you would like to see. it seems clear the president's not going to get everything he wants. if you could put a priority on one thing, what would it be? >> universal background checks. we've got to toughen them. 40% of all the gun sales don't require a background check. there needs to be better federal, state and local coordination, as well. and we've got to repeal the tr amends which say ta background checks can only be kept for 24 hours. that's ridiculous. we ought to be able to keep them and share them. >> what are you also say when you talk about universal background checks, what do you say to folks who do not like this list of gun control policies that the president is pushing and say what
've got some congressional numbers. congress, as john mccain likes to say, when congress is at 14% approval rating, they're down to close relatives and paid staff. >> i want to find the 14%. >> friends and family, that's all. >> 81% disapprove. and then on the republican party, 49% have a negative view of the republican party. just 26% positive. that's their highest negative number since back in 2008, the year president obama first got elected. democrats not doing much better, but better, 38% view the democratic party negatively. so gene, the president's had a pretty good time politically since the election. republicans are starting to figure out how to come back. to the extent republicans have leverage in the upcoming talks, particularly on fiscal issues, where do you think their leverage lies given how unpopular they are and how unpopular congress is? >> well, i think they have less leverage than some people think they have. i mean, i think it would be, frankly, another disaster if republicans try to use the debt ceiling, to force dollar-for-dollar budget reductions. i don't see
